the attack that killed four americans including the top u.s. diplomat in libya was planned in advance. we're also talking with the people behind the controversial anti-muslim film igniting protests that the attackers may have used for cover. we're also watching an important political dimension to this story. mitt romney's immediate criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our

stationed there, believed in there, there was a piece of paper that had scrawled across it "libya is so important." it was a real chilling, somber experience to be walking through it. and one also, though, must point out at this stage that the attack that took place did not just happen at this one location. after personnel were evacuated from this compound, they were then taken to a safe house where we are being told a short while later that location, too, coming under attack. so this really is putting a lot of questions out there, first and foremost of course the capabilities of the libyan government but also the questions to whether or not the u.s. underestimated the threat that it faces here. libyan security officials have been telling us that for months now they've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the
a telemarketer. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> jennifer: the fiery attacks in libya that killed the american ambassador and three diplomat there is were quickly followed by fiery political rhetoric here at home. ambassador j. christopher stevens and three other u.s. officials were killed last night. details about the attacks are still coming in, but here is the latest of what we do know. back in july an incendiary ridiculous movie about muslims was released reportedly by a guy named sam sam sam bacile. he claims to be an israeli. it's not clear who he is, whether he is an israeli and whether a guy named sam bacile exists. but it was so offensive that the grand musti of jackpot condemned it. and roughly 2,000 demonstrators assembleed around the u.s. embassy in cairo. the diplomatic workers inside that embassy saw this protest developing and they understandably were worried about their safety by this situation that was developing. they calmed them down saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we c
a.m. in cairo, the situation there remains very, very tense after the deadly attack in libya president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the
that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in the last three decades and only the sixth in the entire history of american diplomacy. tonight we're learning that his death and the deaths of three of his staffers may have come not at the hands of a random mob of islamic fundamentalists who were riled up by a shadowy anti-muslim youtube film, instead, sources say that a pro-al qaeda group is the key suspect now and a senior u.s. official says american surveillance drones are expected to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missile s have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may be called to beef up the protection forces th

burning in benghazi might have conjured up memories of tehran in 1979, but the analogy is false. in libya, the government is not fomenting anti-americanism. it is fighting it, openly declaring america an ally and friend. libya is pro-american by two to one. the violence there appears to have been the work of small extremist elements that lack much popular support. but the storm has spread from libya. across the middle east there have been protests rallying against the united states and the west in general. even in these places, however, keep in mind that these crowds number in the hundreds, perhaps thousands. in countries with tens of millions of people. they make for vivid images, but they don't tell the whole story. what can we say about these places and protests? first in many of these countries, particularly those that have toppled dictatorships, the most important reality is not of bad government but of weak government. in libya, yemen, and even egypt, the state has lost its ability to control its public. in a sense, this might be progress. egypt didn't see protests like this before
on the embassy. within hours, crowds gathered outside benghazi, libya. armed militants killed the u.s. ambassador and three of the staffers. today, crowds storm the u.s. embassy in yemen. riot police eventually turned them back with tear gas. also today, demonstrators turn out in iran. they aamass outside the swiss embassy, which represents u.s. interests in iran. let's get the latest now from that region. mohammed jamjoon join us. >> about 2,000 to 3,000 protesters that were marching toward the u.s. embassy, many of them aable to get close enough to the main gates. they started scaling the walls. fires were set outside the u.s. embassy compound. i've spoken to a western diplomat there who tells me everyone in the embassy is fine. no word if the staff has been evacuated. just a short while ago, yemeni president issued a statement in which he issued an apology to u.s. president barack obama and the american people for the attack on the embassy today, saying this was unacceptable and ordered yemeni security forces to launch an investigation and prosecute anybody they found involved in this to the f
information, we'll come right back to you. really appreciate it. want to go to to libya where police have arrested four people in connection with a violent death. the u.s. ambassador and four other than americans are in custody in benghazi. they're being indirectly linked to the rocket attack on the u.s. consulate. i want to talk to jimana in tripoli, the libyan capital west of benghazi. first of all, what do we know about those arrested? >> very little, suzanne, so far. what we understand from libyan officials is that at least one of those arrested is a -- they were detained in benghazi yesterday. we know they are being interrogated to see what role they had in the attack, but according to one sore libyan official today, they may not have been directly linked to the attack. they may have ties to the extremist organization that carried out the attack. they have not been charged yet. they are detained and being intrargted acorked to libyan officials, so we should be knowing about this as information is released by the libyan government. >> do we believe these people are really responsible
in for ed schultz, and there is 55 days until the 2012 election. the tragic events in libya today have turned into ugly politics in america. this has genuinely been one of those 24-hour periods that could reshape not only the presidential campaign, but american foreign policy going forward. we'll have all the details. as ed would say, let's get to work. today was an incredibly important day in the u.s. presidential race. in response to the awful attacks in libya, mitt romney said something that was genuinely unbelievable. and then more amazing, he doubled down on it. this is the kind of thing, the kind of day we could look back on the 2012 campaign and say, yeah, romney just never quite managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here, and you know, governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that. it's important for you to make sure that th
of this attack. a free and stable libya is still in america's interest and security. and we will not turn our back on that. >> meanwhile, mitt romney condemned the loss of american lives but he also seized on the attacks even before daybreak slamming the administration's response in what became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. romney then doubled down this morning. >> i spoke out when the key fact that i referred to was known which was that the embassy of the united states issued what appeared to be an apology for american principles. that was a mistake. and i believe that when a mistake is made of that significance you speak out. >> we start our coverage right now with nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel in cairo, egypt. >> reporter: craig, by now there's a familiar scenario explaining what happened in these two separate attacks. that these internet videos were being seen here in egypt, they were being talked about by some radical preachers in this country, people got enflamed, particularly hardline muslims who are the most hardline of sunni muslims and they

"outfront" tonight turmoil spreading. protesters rising up in at least nine middle eastern countries today their target the united states. this is cairo tonight. you're looking at pictures here as you can see flames, molotov cocktails, hundreds of angry protesters amassed outside of the american embassy. security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets to hold them back. even canada out of caution closed their embassy in cairo. a photo cairo, it's a chalk drawing on the ground of a jewish star of david with the words, i'll translate, remember your black day september 11th within in arabic. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on yout
. >>> when moammar gadhafi was still alive, when he was still the dictator of libya, gadhafi had a plan to settle the conflict between israel and the palestinians. to settle that issue once and for all in a very simple way, all you had to do, he said, was make a new place. a new place that would be called isratine. so it was like israel and palestine but you combined them so it would be isratine. he thought just calling a new place that would settle everything. moammar gadhafi also had a condoleezza price problem in he loved condoleezza rice too much. when his compound in tripoli was overrun by rebel forces one thing he found in his living quarters was a mash book of pictures and clippings about condoleezza rice. every page a new thing about condoleezza rice. eke. gadhafi it turns out was also afraid of the top floors of buildings that had multiple floors. gadhafi also never liked to go anywhere without a ukrainian nurse. he had a whole fleet of ukrainian nurses. there was one familiar blond one he liked with him at all times. gadhafi's son once booked mariah carey to perform for the ga

against the united states. but the protests in libya, tunisia, and egypt are smaller in size and lower in volume. a mob started to form near the u.s. embassy in cairo today. but security forces broke it up. a u.s.-made film considered to be insulting the islam was among the protesters this week. >>> and pope benedict xvi calling for religious freedom in the middle east. crowds in lebanon cheered for the pope on the second day of his visit there. the pope praised lebanon as an example of how christians and muslims can work together, marriages between christians and muslims are not uncommon there. but the area has seen violence. there was a protest in tripoli and lebanon. scenes of carnage, in aleppo, syria today. 11 people were killed across the country. at the time, the president met with the envoy to discuss how to end the violence. he accused other nations of funding the terrorism, which he says are responsible for bloodshed. >>> and more rallies in chicago today, by striking teachers, including a march in the streets this afternoon. the two sides reaching a tentative deal, the offic
